The 2015 Nissan Versa Note (the hatchback version) is a hip little number. With a modern design and funky interior, my daughter’s teen/tween friends were quite impressed.
2015 Nissan Versa Note Review
The Versa Note is a very straight-forward, no frills kind of car. The dash and control consoles are very simple (for example, the manual fresh vs circulated air lever) but do what they’re supposed to. Handling is good but, like the Nissan Rogue, the engine in this also seems to lag upon acceleration.
Leg room is decent but, as the Versa Note is on the narrower side, three passengers can only comfortably fit in the back if they have small hips. Two car seats would do fine on the flush seats though. Frans’ arms and legs felt a bit cramped but I was fine.
In case you need to do a an impromptu visit to the local warehouse store, it can be done. With a little ingenuity and utilization of other space, you can fit quite a bit into this car. I just wouldn’t recommend putting Fido back there.
2015 Nissan Versa Note Summary
With decent space for a petite driver and passengers and an average of 35 mpg, the 2015 Nissan Versa Note would make an ideal city car for a small family or even a cost efficient commute car. With a start price under $15,000, it’s a great option for the budget conscious individual.
